Retirement issues can be problematic in a gray divorce

Coloradans who are older and decide that their marriage is no longer working and they would like to move on have a multitude of concerns. While younger people will likely face custody, support and other issues related to children, a so-called "gray divorce" will have different factors to consider such as division of assets and retirement accounts. For people who are older, it is important to know what must be a priority with a gray divorce.

How can a parenting coordinator help with child custody?

All Colorado family law issues are different and parents will each have a unique set of challenges in handling them while the case is ongoing and after it has supposedly been settled. Parental responsibilities, co-parenting, the child's best interests and a visitation schedule are all factors that must be considered. When there are disputes that cannot be settled but the court believes it can be done without having to make overt orders on its own, a parenting coordinator might be named. This is a neutral third party who will address the concerns.

A child's best interests and factors with grandparent visitation

There are many people who will be important in a Colorado child's life. When there is a breakdown of the family and the couple decides to divorce, child custody and the visitation schedule are two issues that will be of paramount importance for the child's development. Not all cases involve the parents alone. Others will want visitation rights with the child. Frequently, that includes grandparents. Knowing the background details of grandparent visitation is as important as the basics. Having legal help is always a key to these complex circumstances.

Colorado child custody can be complex and requires legal help

When Colorado parents have reached a point in their relationship where they can no longer stay together, there are many issues that must be considered as they prepare to move on and divorce. Children are a critical factor in the process. For some couples, the divorce is relatively amicable and they can agree on fundamentals with child custody. Others are more contentious, but they can put personal animosity to the side for the sake of the children. Still others are in full-blown dispute and the child custody situation is a continuous battle. In any of these circumstances, having legal help is imperative and should not be ignored.

Knowing when to consider divorce in Colorado

Colorado couples who are having trouble in their marriage might be unsure of when the situation has grown so toxic that it is preferable for all involved to end the union and move on. Statistically, a large portion of marriages will end in divorce. As many as half will be part of that unfortunate statistic. A question that is often asked of experts and divorce attorneys is when is it time to move forward with the process. While there is no failsafe time to make that determination, there are certain factors that are important in the decision and should not be glossed over.
